It calms the waters: Samsung withdraws its injunctions against Apple in Europe
Apple and Samsung have spent much time in court lately, taking out several lawsuits by different topics in different countries of the world, with Europe being one of the main centers where the fight had taken enough heat. But now things have calmed down, with Samsung who has announced he has withdrawn his legal claims to ban sales of Apple computers in Europe.
This means that the legal requirements had asked courts in Germany, the UK, France, Italy and the Netherlands have been abandoned for a number of intellectual patents that have not been detailed and that will slow the wave of Demand that we have seen, at least in that region.
“Samsung remains committed to license our technology on fair, reasonable and non-discriminatory, and we firmly believe that it is better if companies compete fairly in the market, rather than in court. Under this spirit, Samsung has decided to withdraw its injunctions against Apple based on our essential patents pending in Europe, in the interest of protecting the freedom of choice of consumers, “declared Samsung.
